SHOT/CHASER - DEAN HELLER SAYS ONE THING ON VETERANS’ HOMELESSNESS, DOES ANOTHER
Shot: @SenDeanHeller: I share Dan’s concerns about the high rate of homelessness among veterans. Our nation’s heroes deserve better. [Heller Tweet, 6/7/2012]
Chaser: Dean Heller voted to gut a program that would help nearly 11,000 additional homeless veterans get off the streets and put a roof over their heads
"Unelected incumbent Senator Dean Heller must have a case of bad Washington amnesia," said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson. "Despite claiming to be concerned about veterans' unemployment, Heller actually voted to gut a program that would have helped nearly 11,000 homeless veterans get off the street. Heller can tweet all he wants, but nothing will hide the fact that Nevada veterans can't trust Heller to stand up for them when it counts."
